In honour of Earth Day on April 22, volunteers from the Glengarry-Prescott-Russell riding’s Green Party of Canada (GPC) Electoral District Association (EDA) have organized a family-friendly park clean-up event in Casselman.

Members from all communities are invited to meet at High Falls Park Conservation Area on Friday, April 22, at 4 p.m.

Thaila Riden, the Green Party of Ontario candidate for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell, will be joining the clean-up effort and performing a free acoustic show with his band 50 PROOF, at 1844 Bistro Eatery & Pub after the clean-up. The invitation to join volunteers at 1844 Bistro around 6 p.m. is open to all.

“This is a great opportunity to make community connections through respect and care for our parks and ecosystems, and it’s a perfect way to get to know one of the riding’s candidates before voting day,” says member of the GPC EDA and environmental activist Stephanie Marcil. “You don’t have to be a Green Party supporter to help take care of our community or get to know those dedicated to representing it.”

Garbage bags will be provided for volunteers but please bring your own reusable gloves!

Registration for the event is through Eventbrite.
